Overall, the wheelchair has given Alfie a lot more freedom. For instance, he can now finally use the family’s garden on his own, as he can now move freely around it, with ease. This has been very helpful during the lockdown period.
One of the biggest advantages of the new wheelchair is that it allows Alfie to go out and about with his family and join in with their activities. It's especially helpful that the new powered wheelchair is adjusted for all types of terrains. With the new powered wheelchair, Alfie can participate in these family walks more actively and for longer periods of times.
Emily feels that her experience with Variety has been very positive. She also found the application process quite straightforward. What she'd like to say to other families is that, whilst it's never much fun to fill out forms, it is only one form at the end of the day, and it will benefit the whole family, and especially the child, for years to come.
